Aug. 7th, 2007 | 11:28 am

So i'm officially a graduate!! Crazy times! Thanks to everyone that came to see my show! It went really well and I got some good feedback from people. I have moved into a new flat (which I love!!)and am now looking for a job!! Got a few things in mind, still not completely decided what it is that I actually want to do with my life but hey ho! I've been applying for jobs like embroidery designer, trainee buyer and various other things but we shall see. I would like to do some work experience placements aswel so i'm busy busy busy searching for things. Anyway i'll post some pictures of my final show and my graduation(me in a funny hat!)next time I come into uni (i hate not having the internet at home!!). So bye for now... Hope you are well Rachel! Did you make it to the show? So sorry if I missed you! xx

1 day to go!!!

Jun. 6th, 2007 | 02:00 am

Ok so we've had 2 days of set up already and tomorrow at 5.30pm it will all be over! :(

It's quite sad but very very exciting at the same time.

I wont post anymore photographs until after the show opens on the 15th as I don't want to spoil it for people that may be coming!!

For anyone that does want to come, (the more the merrier!!) the show is running from the 15th (private view) to the 24th June. Please contact me for any more details!

Thanks again to everyone that has helped me with my work, whether it be sending objects or just the encouragement and messages! Thanks and hopefully see you at the show! :)
